It reminds me so much of my time in the United States. It is crunchy outside but all soft inside. Exactly how I love it!
These chocolate chip cookies are unbelievably soft, chewy and totally cruelty-free.
There are no fancy ingredients in there, no additives or things I can’t pronounce. The only thing you really need is flaxseed as this is our vegan egg replacement. I think you can find Flax Seed on Amazon (Europe) or in an organic store. I personally use the Organic Golden Flax Seeds I brought from the states. But no matter which brand you use it will work!
While making the cookies I was wondering if there is a perfect season to have cookies. I came up with the thought that every season is cookie season. It might be one of my fondest memories, sitting in front of the fireplace int he mountains having a hot chocolate and still warm chocolate chip cookies, but I would not mind eating a batch in summer. NO PROBLEM
- 1 cup gluten-free all-purpose flour
- ¼ cup almond flour
- 1 tsp baking powder
- ½ tsp baking soda
- ¾ cup coconut sugar (substitute 1:1 with normal caster sugar)
- ⅓ cup Earth Balance butter (room temperature)

- 1 tbsp ground flax seeds + 3 tbsp rice milk
- ¼ cup rice milk
- ½ tbsp vanilla extract
- ½ tsp stevia (optional)
- ¾ cup vegan dark chocolate chips
- a pinch of fine sea salt
- Preheat your oven to 350F
- Combine the flax seed and the rice milk in a small bowl and let set for some minutes
- Place butter, coconut sugar, peanut butter, rice milk, stevia, vanilla extract, salt in a medium bowl and whisk until everything is well combined. Add the flax seed mixture and whisk again.
- Combine the flours, baking soda, baking powder in another bowl
- Gradually add the flour mix to the wet mixture and stir together with a rubber spatula.
- Do not overmix but rather combine. I actually did this with my hands. I want to feel it .)
- Lastly, fold in the chocolate chips in the batter
- With your hands form 10-12 discs on the baking sheet and bake for about 8-10 minutes
- They will look very soft once you take them out but they will harden once cooled down
